This was my second Hix experience and both have left me slightly underwhelmed by the food. It's ok but at the prices it's being sold at, I expect a little better.

Very disappointed - asked waiter to recommend between tartar and sirloin, went for sirloin "juicy, attached to bone, very tender", asked for medium-rear as it should be and the result: chewy, more medium than rear, nerves and lots of fat (I know that is needed,...More

Attended on a Monday afternoon at 2:30pm in a group of three people. Unsurprisingly, the restaurant was quiet at that time. I ordered the pigeon on a bed of polenta for starter. The pigeon was nicely cooked and the meat was very tender with plenty...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky

HIX Oyster & Chop House is situated a stones throw from Smithfield Market, London’s historic meat market. Originally a sausage factory and then a fish restaurant, many of its original features remain. The wooden floors, marble oyster bar, tiled walls and linen tablecloths go towards creating an elegant yet unfussy dining room. The menu reflects Mark Hix’s signature British style with seasonal and daily changing dishes featuring oysters from around the British Isles, and a selection of meats and steaks on the bone.
